If you’ve been reading my blog through the fall, you will remember my post Sweaters For Syria. The project has met with favourable response and then some.

Today we received a message from our pastor with an update from Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) on its project Sweaters for Syria. Thanks to many Canadian residents, refugees from children to adults who left Syria when the unrest began in their country, and who are now in Jordan, will be a little warmer. CLWR’s message read:

Today we loaded our second sweater shipment for Syrian relief. In addition to our first shipment there are now 47,706 sweaters on their way to the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan. We will immediately begin preparing our third sweater shipment to depart early in the New Year.

For more information on their projects, go to http://www.clwr.org/index.cfm

      Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I had the privilege of lightening my closet and sending about 4 sweaters. It takes many people to make a pile of sweaters that high. 🙂
